When Jane is murdered, Ardis must assume responsibility for the project. With the help of mysterious Blake Lydon, She must unravel the tomb’s mystery - an ancient secret concerning two miniature obelisks of gold hidden by Queen Hatsheput’s lover, Senmut, over 2,000 years ago.

Great Mystery for Those who Love Tales about Egypt

This mystery, the first in the Ardis Cole series, centers around the legend of Queen Hatshepsut, Egypt's only woman pharaoh. A tomb has been discovered that is believed to be the burial place of the queen's lover, Senmut. When archeologist Ardis Cole takes over the project, she is threatened by unknown rivals who compete for a hidden treasure.

The story is both interesting and informative. In addition to an exciting mystery, it gives the reader much more, with a larger-than-life storyline and strong characterization. I enjoyed it so much I intend to read more books in the series.

Utterly predictable

The story was utterly predictable and there was very little character development. Despite the what the blurb says, Ardis Cole is not Indiana Jones. The narrator was just as dull the story and the recording quality was very poor. I usually download at least 2 books in a new series, but I didn't this time and I'm so glad I didn't waste money or credits.
